Rare lost episode of Mr Ed. One of only two episodes that are in the Public Domain. This episode is, essentially, an episode length public service announcement on behalf of the US treasury. Wilbur and Mr Ed extol the virtues of payroll saving plans and their benefits for the American way of life.

A 1951 episode of the Emmy-winning variety series "The Alan Young Show". This episode includes a sketch about two people who meet at their doors, and a sketch about a department store.
